How To Fix “QuickBooks – Application with Revoked Certificate” Error

In today’s fast-paced and highly competitive business landscape, effective financial management is crucial. Businesses of all sizes and across various industries rely on accounting software to streamline their financial processes, ensure accuracy in their transactions, and gain insights into their financial health. Intuit QuickBooks is one of the best software on the market and has solidified its status as the go-to choice for businesses seeking to not only manage their finances but also to thrive and prosper in an ever-evolving marketplace. However, even the most reliable tools can encounter errors along the way, and one such error is the “QuickBooks – Application with Revoked Certificate” error. In this article, we will explain various methods to fix this error.

Understanding the “QuickBooks – Application with Revoked Certificate” Error

When you sync QuickBooks with Intuit apps like Field Service Management or Statement Writer, or even with third-party applications using QuickBooks Web Connector, a digital certificate is used to establish and confirm the secure connection. This certificate ensures the integrity and safety of your financial data during the synchronization process. However, digital certificates have a limited period, and when they expire, it can lead to the “QuickBooks – Application with Revoked Certificate” error.

How to Resolve this Error?

The resolution of this error depends on whether you are syncing QuickBooks with or without Web Connector and the specific application causing the issue. Below are the methods that can be used to resolve this error.

Syncing QuickBooks without Web Connector

If you encounter the error when synchronizing QuickBooks with a third-party application without using Web Connector, follow these steps:

  • Update Your Third-Party Application: Update the third-party application that may be causing the error and ensure that you are using the latest version available.
  • Attempt to Sync QuickBooks: After updating the application, try to synchronize QuickBooks again. If the error persists, then contact the developer of the third-party application for further assistance.

Syncing QuickBooks with Web Connector

For users who are using Web Connector to sync QuickBooks with a third-party application and encounter this error, follow the given steps:

Update QuickBooks Desktop: To resolve the error caused by an expired QuickBooks Web Connector digital certificate, make sure your QuickBooks Desktop is updated to the latest release.
